Shooting Australia has since received confirmation from the ISSF that Australia has been allocated 12 quota places. These quotas include 2 in Women’s Trap, 1 each in Men’s and Women’s Skeet and 1 each in the Men’s and Women’s Pistol and Rifle events. The ISSF has also advised that a direct athlete quota has been received by James Willett in Men’s Trap based on his Qualification Ranking for the Olympic Games (QROG).

After a very intense 6 months of domestic and international competition, the Australian Shooting athletes have now concluded the competition component of the nomination process in accordance with the Paris 2024 Olympic Nomination Criteria. Shooting Australia’s focus is now to determine which eligible athletes will fill quotas, in accordance with the Criteria.

Shooting Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Adam Sachs, says, “The Nomination of athletes to the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) for their selection to the Australian Olympic Team must be made by 24 June. This process is applicable for all Olympic quotas.”

“The AOC will then formalise the selection of the athletes to the Australian Shooting Team with a public announcement planned for 27 June.”

“We are excited for the Australian Shooting Team announcement. We are looking forward to celebrating those athletes who have achieved Olympic selection and will wear the green and gold with pride as they represent Australia at the 2024 Olympic Games.”
